Improve Organ Function and Well-Being

 

 

 

Ancient literature going back 2,500 years depict images of exercises similar to Qigong postures but it’s also considered to be over 6,000 years old. It’s a strongly established method originating from China that uses a gentle combination of breathing, stretching and meditating for easing muscle tension, relieving stress, generating flexibility, cultivating energy, and increasing balance in specific organs relevant to each position.

From a literal standpoint, the word “Qi” is the Chinese word for “vital energy”. Qi is the animating force that moves through our body and soul and gives us not only life but consciousness. The concept of a living energy can be found in every culture and is known by names such as Prana (India), Ruach (Israel), Aenema (Ancient Greece), Holy Spirit (Christianity), and The Force (Star Wars).

“Gong” is the Chinese word for “work” or “skill”. So the word “Qigong” can be translated as “the skill of vital energy”.”

This is a short exercise of 20 minutes and even if done only once you will feel immediate benefits. It provides a great sense of inner peace, a clearing of the mind that alleviates mental strain and I recommend trying it out every morning, every other morning, one evening a week, or whenever it suits you.

Change your Direction

Imagination is the key to unlocking life’s full potential. In your mind is the ability to create endless possibilities and to choose a pathway that may take you higher or lower. You can direct yourself into elevated happiness simply through choice. Each micro choice you make leads you closer to the divine power or leads you astray to confusion, anger, resentment, misery and loneliness. In taking control over every choice you take control of your own life. Change its course. Alter the direction. Inherit a strong desire to improve your life by doing what is good for you. The soul nourishing things that will make your heart sing in the long term. Activities and actions providing us with immediate short term pleasure are not in coordination with activities and actions that implement deep inner peace, gratitude and further blessings. It begins only with recognising distinctive thought patterns. Thoughts attempting to weaken your strength implying that the world around you is a terrible place, that you must follow the crowd, that you must analyse with your mind, that there are doubts and fears preventing imagination from pushing through into the sphere of positivity. Cast these ideas aside; they are false. Welcome your inner light to glow with confident modesty and let it build slowly over time eliminating shrouding darkness.
